Young Dro is back — not that he ever left. Hip-Hop Wired had an opportunity to sit with the Atlanta rapper to discuss the seven year gap between his major albums, how he would have reacted had Gucci Mane said something about him, and a few more hilarious topics as well.
Why The Thigh Gap Trend Is The Worst
Chances are you’ve noticed someone’s thigh gap before. Maybe you see one when you look in the mirror, maybe you’ve seen it on others; thigh gaps are nothing new. Metabolisms are different, and naturally skinny people are everywhere. To get technical, a thigh gap is the space left between the thighs when ones’ feet are touching side by side or close together.

News broke this past summer that the hard-to-please Cowell is expecting a baby with the socialite, who is the estranged wife of his good friend, real estate mogul hubby Andrew Silverman (who has since filed for divorce). This will be Cowell’s first child.
